Adolf Hitler Bust, Life Size-This is a life size bust of the Führer, with the artists’ name on the neck "H J Pagels". Hermann Joachim Pagels is known for his extremely high quality and lifelike renderings and this one is no exception. Overall, the piece measures 16 1/2" tall, with the bust itself measuring 12" high. The wooden base, we believe, is a replacement. It tightens up nicely (it will become loose if it gets spun on the base) and looks great. The bust is "solid" and has a light brass finish which remains 60-70% intact with the base metal showing through the missing areas. The base of the bust (below the neck) is marked "Lagenhammer" followed by a maker mark and "Bildguss 29". There is an indentation at the top right of the Führers head which is very minor but important to note. A great piece!
